Building our Capacity for Change
A day of learning, connecting and inspiring change in Manchester Museum’s Top Floor environmental action and social justice hub.
More than our collections and exhibitions, Manchester Museum is a social space where people can connect with community and place – and this is most visible on our Top Floor.
The Top Floor is a hub for learning, connecting, and inspiring change, driven by Manchester Museum’s values and commitment to building understanding between cultures and a more sustainable world.
We want to support those who are shaping a more sustainable and fair future for Manchester. Different communities are invited to embrace and make use of the Top Floor however they need to. The Top Floor creates the potential for new and unique collaborations and opens up the museum and its resources to those who are leading and inspiring social change – both within and beyond the Museum walls. It is becoming a home for communities, charities, activists, and artists working across a wide range of issues including action on climate pollution and biodiversity loss, wellbeing and mental health services, inclusive access to arts and culture and testing new models for education.
On Saturday 16th September we invite you to share, learn and build with us in a day of workshops and networking on the Top Floor.
This is event is open to changemakers of all types: community organisers, independent practitioners, social enterprises, charities.
This session is being offered on a ‘pay what you can afford’ basis. If you are part of an organisation with resources to do so, please consider making a financial contribution (recommended £10) as this increases our capacity to support unfunded groups and independent organisers.
